In 2012, as soon as I moved to Latvia, I found Livonia by contacting the Latvian Federation president, who sent my contact to Mark, who was the head coach at that time.
I directly felt warmly welcomed, and I will remember for a long time the wonderful trip to Sweden which was a great occasion to get to know everyone and share some memorable moments with the team.
In definitive, I have been playing 3 years with Livonia and I had the chance to see that team evolve and improve a lot. It has been amazing to win the championship 2 years in a row, to get to play with really strong and talented players and to enjoy after game parties with them.
I would definitely recommend Livonia for any guest, as it is a great opportunity to enjoy quality rugby in a good atmosphere. Moreover, Livonia offers the opportunity to play a lot of games in the season (15s, 7s championship, tournaments abroad, 10s tournaments, friendly touring games).
I now left Latvia but I will always remind my time spent in Livonia. I wish the best for that team and for all the guys. Regarding the potential of some of them, I know that they are able to be Latvia champions again, and to improve their overall skills. I wish more of the guys will be called in the National Team, and I know lots of them deserve to be there.
